I wonder how many saw 2014's Starry Eyes, Late Phases, Housebound, The Babadook, A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night, The Canal, Life After Beth, Wyrmwood, The Town That Dreaded Sundown,...




All but Late Phases & Starry eyes I've seen on that list.
Did you see Coherence?

Yep. I loved Coherence. You seen +1 aka Plus One? Not as good as coherence but it's pretty good. Also check out The One I Love.

Some other horror from 2014 I didn't list in my other post is a Belgium movie 'Cub' and the movie Summer of Blood. Not sure how I'd rank Starry Eyes, Late Phases, Cub, and Summer of Blood. I quite liked them all. Personally favoring Starry Eyes and Late Phases just a bit more.

I haven't seen +1.... I remember hearing it was a poor man's Triangle? Hmmmm I may check it out.
I loved Triangle and also LOVED Los cronoscrimenes (Time Crimes).

Haven't seen Cub yet, waiting for a decent copy with subs to surface.


I think the rubber reality, head**** movies are some of my favs....

So I watched +1 and it wasn't bad.... not great and definitely not up to the standard of some of the others listed but I'd certainly rather watch a film like that than some of the crap that is churned out.

Dunno... The Tunnel maybe?

I don't think I've seen it.

Hmmm... Not how I would describe it...

Triangle is the superior film of the two, and there are some similarities *shrug*

Time Crimes I have downloaded. Seems to make it on people's favorites lists. Currently watching a bunch of other "foreign" horror films first.

I downloaded and watched one a few days ago. Solid video and audio. Subs from what I could gather were good.

Ahhh. Excellent
Yep I just found it entertaining, not that I thought it was stellar. I recommended it had some similarities to Coherence.

Never heard the "Rubber Reality" phrase before. Looked it up on IMDB lists and I've seen and liked most of the movies listed lol So I guess I like that style of film a lot too. I'm sure I could recommend a ton if I thought about it.

This was a list I saw. Seen all of these films: Link

Ahh cool I just downloaded that film
Will watch it soon enough.

Also if you have the stomach for French Extreme horror than watch Borderland [2007] IMDB

On that note:

I've seen lots of French horror. Like Martyrs, Switchblade Romance, Inside, Trouble Every Day, Frontier(s), Livide, Them.

Most of those are rather brutal.

I like the phrase Rubber Reality, can't remember when I first heard it but it's a good catch all term for these kinds of films.
Yeah seen all on that list too... there are lots and lots of these kinds of films, some much better than others.

I'm far from religious and I don't have any off limit topics to movies except for infidelity really. If that's a central theme I mean. Thanks for the heads up though

Yeah have the I inside on DVD... it's fairly average but worth a watch.
Have Stay too... not seen Franklyn, will check it out.

Lost Highway
Eyes Wide Shut
Identity
Moon
Jacobs Ladder
TimeCrimes
The Jacket
Stay
Donnie Darko
Tideland
The Fountain
Never Let Me Go
Pi
The Truman Show
The Nines
Mulholland Drive
12 Monkeys
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
American Psycho
Triangle
I Heart Huckabees

Cypher
Dark City
The Thirteenth Floor
Open Your Eyes


Plus I have all of the other one's we've chatted about coherence, the canal, etc ...and also one's like Oculus, As above, so below, The Signal, The Congress, Banshee Chapter.... etc etc on a Hard Drive that's hooked up to my TV.

I don't buy dvd's or Blurays any more.

I'm always on the look out for new "weird" alternate/rubber reality movies so lemme know if you hear of any more and I'll do the same.

You might have misread my post. That stuff won't bother me. I'm actually an antitheist as well.

a reply to: blupblup

I have seen every movie on your list except Lost Highway [strange since I have seen other David Lynch movies], Time Crimes as I mentioned, Carnival of Souls, and Imposter [I don't think...].

Do you mean Abre Los Ojos or Vanilla Sky?

Well I will make a list of 'rubber reality' films I have seen that you didn't include in that list!

I agree about The I Inside. I was entertained though.

Timecrimes... I know you said you were DL'ing it - you've definitely gotta see it.
I LOVE that film, one of my favs.

Carnival of Souls may very well be the first of this genre... It certainly influenced the genre massively.
Such an atmospheric and creepy film.
I had the criterion double disc release but sold it... I only have the standard DVD copy now


Impostor not great to be honest but it's based on a Philip K Dick story and I LOVE PKD






Do you mean Abre Los Ojos or Vanilla Sky?


Yeah Abres Los Ojos - I've seen both but prefer the original for sure.
Vanilla Sky not terrible but not as trippy and creepy IMHO




Well I will make a list of 'rubber reality' films I have seen that you didn't include in that list!

Yeah do mate, I'd be interested.
Like I said..I have a ton of films on a 1TB drive now ( have 3 drives actually lol)... all the movies from last 4-5 years really - well one's worth keeping anyway... don't buy DVD/BR any more. plus collections like Back to the Future, James Bond, Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th... plus classics like 2001 ASO, Godfather Trilogy... just a crap load, way too many to list.

I had 1000 DVDS at one point... had to sell man, was just insane.
Probably have 200 - 250 left now and still selling them slowly on ebay.
